    Thanks! What a list - a lot of it originally recorded on tape, with (maybe) a 13 to 14 bit SNR, most of the rest on digital, probably 48 kHz sample rate.

    Have you ever considered being creative and moving your juvenile protest movement to your own thread?

    Or did you already try that and no one showed up?

    Just remember, Mother still loves you.

    Does it not bother you that most recordings going truogh the process is the same old analog and low res digital recordings (48kHz original sample rate in the studio ) they already sold to us as SACD DVDA and HD tracks downloads ( up-sampled to 96 or192 ) ? No true hirez pedigree hence can not really benefit.
    It's the same issue as with HD downloads . It's only considerable if the original recordings is a true hirez recording to begin with .
    For example 2L and AIX .
    There must be real ultrasonic content in the original signal it's that content that get MQA encoded .

    If you feel MQA needs to be defended, please feel free to do it, but preferably using rational, fact-based arguments rather than childish personal attacks. I also (again) suggest you do it in the "audiophile" subforum.

    Conjecture(s) Based on Faulty Assumptions?

    Not sure who your comment is directed to Mnyb?

    Doesn't it bother you (or whoever) that you've developed an opinion not based in fact but rather speculation and conjecture? Unless you've spoken directly with Content Providers/Partners (http://www.mqa.co.uk/customer/our-partners), you don't know the profile of the original, i.e. best studio master. If MQA makes "old analog and low res digital recordings" sound better, then MQA would be my choice. It's really a basic "cost/benefit" decision.

    MQA represents that Content Providers use the highest quality original for creating the MQA edition. In every A/B comparison I've listened to via TIDAL streaming, the MQA version is superior SQ. If I purchased music rather than exclusively streamed, I'd be forced to accept the reality that Content Providers are going to keep pace with emerging audio technology. If I felt there was little-to-no improvement, I simply voted with my feet--i.e. stick with what I have and don't patronize the latest and greatest. This is really common sense.

    The problem is that any developers still active on this site that are technically capable of doing this are probably also technical capable enough to see that MQA is a waste of time...

    Yup, you're probably right and my interest was only to test the MQA hype......... and was hoping it could be fixed pretty easily but maybe not
    My SBT is doing a great jo on all other areas so I'll probably keep it for a long time still
